Making Decisions

a Biblical thought...
Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face, who did all those miraculous signs and wonders the LORD sent him to do in Egypt—to Pharaoh and to all his officials and to his whole land. For no one has ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel. (Deut 34:10-12)

a Book thought...
The leader who is going nowhere will take hits from all sides. The leader who sets a direction will at least know what direction the arrows will be coming from. (p157)
a Dave thought...
Last night as the planning team met for the Glenferrie Outreach, we looked at who should influence our decisions regarding the model and location for our way forward for our new plant. As we have many opportunities opening up we are asking which one God has in mind or are there several ways forward?

We have the option of basing the corps out of a cafe, a house, an outreach vehicle, or lastly a building which we tend to default to as a Salvation Army. Now as we are getting closer to making the decision who's voices should be strongest in the discussion -

1. God's - the reason we are here and who has called us together
2. Others - other Salvation Army centres, the local council & other groups who already work in the area
3. Our team - surely our giftings and passions should shape the way forward

For every action we take there is a following consequence, lets pray our way forward is what God has in mind.

Just a thought.
